Tabata Training

Tabata is a basic form of interval training which I regularly use in my clients and my own sessions.

A tabata session is structured like this:

20 sec work
10 secs rest
repeat for required number of rounds.

It is very popular with martial arts and combat athletes but it also has excellent potential for use with bodybuilders, Olympic lifters and other conditioning training. I like it as you get a particularly intense workout in a short period of time. So, I would also recommend it for those who are short of time and prefer to exercise at home.

1 exercise example: Squats

20 sec Squats
